Billion dollars over ten years almost a trillion.

The CBO says that would save 862.
Billion dollars and how about raising the earliest eligibility age for Social Security.
That would save another 144.
Billion dollars just those cuts that we've mentioned and that's just a small fractional.
Two trillion dolls will be say.
You could get four point six trillion dollars worth of savings if the CBO's proposals all of them will put in place Mike Reagan George.

-- -- Your analysis place.
Earlier rapture right -- -- -- done because word we put the 58.
You know million dollars for algae subsidies -- -- we put the bridge to nowhere where do we put.
All those things that would like to throw into the piece of legislation to get them passed in the first place.
Why -- -- knows what needs to be done.
But the fact is they refused to do and a regular basis that concept you've brought up but the CBO if you -- out the American public has said would you.
Agreed to -- the American public would say yes but those that we elect representatives.
Have to go to K street to get permission to do their job.

Keep on spending keep on borrowing.
-- he he may very well do that Stewart but that's because the Republicans refused to define the issue instead they're defending the issue.
And when the conservatives or the Republicans are not to finding they are in fact losing.
The Republicans have a chance -- take a CBO numbers add to fight the issue and put it back on Barack Obama.
If they do not do that than Barack Obama wins the day and America lose.
I think that's exactly what's gonna happen -- might.
